Alan Rogers Review

Attractive and well maintained, this family orientated, municipal campsite is close to the small spa town of Saint Nectaire. There are 88 good sized, slightly sloping, grassy pitches, 60 for touring units. Most have 10A electricity and are separated by hedging and low fencing with mature trees offering some shade. The touring pitches are in an area separate from chalets to rent. The site is aimed at couples and families with young children and offers a simple programme of organised activities. Only gas and electric barbecues are allowed.

Saint Nectaire with its Therms, caves, Casino and famous cheese is 1 km. and attractive Lac Chambon with fishing, bathing in the lake, bicycle hire and boat hire is 6 km. This is a fantastic area for touring by car, bike and on foot.


One large modern, well appointed toilet block has all the necessary facilities including for campers with disabilities. Another very small block is near the swimming pool. Motorcaravan services. Very small shop (bread to order). Bar with TV (from 1/5) with small games area. Small swimming and paddling pools (15/6-15/9). Play area. Very simple programme of family activities in July/Aug. Central gas barbecue point.
